For months, the Democrats and the so-called “mainstream” media have been pushing the conspiracy theory that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to rig the 2016 election.
However, no evidence has surfaced to prove this baseless claim.
And Americans are now learning the FBI was neck-deep in scheming with Barrack Obama to create this witch hunt.
Donald Trump rocked the political world when he claimed the Obama administration had spied on him during the presidential campaign.
The so-called “mainstream” media dismissed his claims in order to shield Obama from scandal.
But it was recently reported that the FBI had obtained a FISA warrant in order to spy on former Trump campaign official, Carter Page.
Page has been the subject of media speculation that he must be a Russian spy because he traveled to Moscow once over the summer and he did not support Hillary Clinton’s belligerent foreign policy.
In the eyes of a media committed to selling the theory that the Russians stole the election from their darling candidate, it’s enough to convict one of being a Russian agent.
But to get a FISA warrant against an American citizen, the government must provide evidence that the individual is knowingly acting as an agent of a foreign government.
So what evidence did the FBI submit on their application to spy on Carter Page?
They used the discredited opposition research memo prepared by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.
“The FBI last year used a dossier of allegations of Russian ties to Donald Trump’s campaign as part of the justification to win approval to secretly monitor a Trump associate, according to US officials briefed on the investigation.
The dossier has also been cited by FBI Director James Comey in some of his briefings to members of Congress in recent weeks, as one of the sources of information the bureau has used to bolster its investigation, according to US officials briefed on the probe.
This includes approval from the secret court that oversees the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to monitor the communications of Carter Page, two of the officials said. Last year, Page was identified by the Trump campaign as an adviser on national security.”
This dossier has largely been discredited as fake news.
It included scandalous gossip about Donald Trump which was clearly false.
In fact, even Obama’s former Acting CIA Director expressed serious doubts about the Steele memo.
NBC News reports:
“About the dossier, Morell said, “Unless you know the sources, and unless you know how a particular source acquired a particular piece of information, you can’t judge the information — you just can’t.”
The dossier “doesn’t take you anywhere, I don’t think,” he said.
He continued: “I had two questions when I first read it. One was, How did Chris talk to these sources? I have subsequently learned that he used intermediaries.
“And then I asked myself, why did these guys provide this information, what was their motivation? And I subsequently learned that he paid them. That the intermediaries paid the sources and the intermediaries got the money from Chris. And that kind of worries me a little bit because if you’re paying somebody, particularly former FSB officers, they are going to tell you truth and innuendo and rumor, and they’re going to call you up and say, ‘hey, let’s have another meeting, I have more information for you,’ because they want to get paid some more.
“I think you’ve got to take all that into consideration when you consider the dossier.”
The FBI’s use of the memo raises another red flag.
Steele prepared his memo while supporters of Hillary Clinton were paying the firm he worked for.
That means the FBI used gossip – paid for by political opponents of Trump – as their supposed evidence to spy on someone loosely associated with his campaign.
This information troubles many Americans.
As more layers of this story get peeled away, it’s becoming clear that the real scandal here is the Obama administration and the intelligence community had colluded together to spy on their political opponents and created fake news scandals to harm their political prospects.
